I have a GE double Electric Over. The Boiler element is staying on and the only way to shut it off it at the house power breaker box. Whenever I switch the breaker on, the broiler element comes back on. When the first happened it resulted in an F2 error on the control panel. I installed a new control panel about 2 years ago when we were consistently getting an F2 error. However this issue with the broiler element staying on in a new problem. Could it also be related to the control panel or is there a relay somewhere that could be stuck that I need to replace?

Re: GE JTP27WW Broiler Element won't shut off
This can be a relay problem. the control panel that you replaced may have problems communicating with the original relay that was installed by the manufacturer. the relay may be frozen due to the conflict with the after market control panel. replacing this relay will fix your problem.

Could be wiring. Did it work before? Maybe, never connected? Could be demand of two oven's and or broilers at the same time exceeded the wire and circuit breaker capacity when installed and therefore were never connected.
Otherwise thermostat. Probably need appliance Tec or Electrician.
You could use the oven without the broiler. It is customary that the oven will use the broil element to even out the heat in the oven for better baking but you could use if. it just may not bake evenly. There could be two things that is causing the broil element to stay energized. the control is not shutting down or there is a short to ground in the broil element. Have the broil element tested, it could just need replacing. If it is in the control that is a bigger problem.
does the bake element come on at all? if so, try the oven out. do a bake @ 350 allow it to pre-heat, and see if once the pre-heat is comlete, id the broil shuts off. on many ovens at the beginning of the cycle during pre-heat both bake and broil elements are powered.
other than that it may be a control board, or a burnt and crossed wire in the harness.
